Carole (Apter) Spector
Carole Spector, age 69, beloved wife of 41 years to Martin Spector passed away at her home in Myrtle Beach, SC on Monday, July 21, 2008. Carole was born in Hartford, CT on August 8, 1938, the daughter of Samuel and Emma Apter. Carole graduated from Hall High School in West Hartford and the University of Connecticut, returning to earn her degree as an adult after raising her children. She and Marty moved to Myrtle Beach, SC nine years ago. Carole was an active member of the PTA and MADD and a member of the Social Action Committee at Congregation Beth Israel, West Hartford and was a leader in feeding the poor, homeless and needy children. She performed volunteer work at the Plant School Housing Project and also at McLean Hospital in Simsbury with Alzheimer patients. She and Marty also enjoyed camping and mall walking together. Carole was an avid reader and book club member and enjoyed being Queen Mother of her Red Hat Society chapter. Her Springer Spaniel Molly brought her much joy for 14 years. Her first love was her family, especially her grandchildren.
